"We all know what this is ... it's money. And people like you use money every day ... We all know how to spend money. That's easy. But do you know where it comes from? Or for that matter, what happens to it after you spend it?"
These questions and more are answered in WHERE THE BANKERS BANK. Created by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, the video takes you on a guided tour of one of the 12 District banks that make up the Federal Reserve System, our nation's central bank. WHERE THE BANKERS BANK was created to accompany THE MONEY TREE, an instruction unit produced by the St. Louis Federal Reserve and the MIssouri Council on Economic Education at the Universities of Missouri-St. Louis and Columbia. THE MONEY TREE is an educator's guide to teaching money and banking concepts to fourth-through-eight-graders.
